Pleasant Goosebumps

Back in Spain. When I tore a page of my tear-a-page-calendar this morning, it´s wisdom was a “law” going by the name of Paul´s Law: “It is impossible to fall from the floor.” A comforting thought.

But then I disproved it. Rereading Friedman´s by-now famous article It´s a Flat World, After All (in the NY Times a few years ago and a classic positivist defense of globalisation) I came past the following sentence:

“Remember, that in China, when you´re a one-in-a-million, there are still 1,300 more of you.”

It gave me pleasant goosebumps. In the Netherlands there are still only 15 more types like me.
